It looks like it is the same as the Sumiko Premiere MMT. What table are you planning on using it on?

I am building a new plinth using birch plywood primarily. The plinth will be 5 by 15 by 22 inches. It will weigh in at about 65 pounds. I have dismantled my 1983 version of the Cranfield Elite Rock Turntable with Excalibur Tonearm. I am using the massive bearing and platter from this turntable.
I will be installing a Jelco SA-750D tonearm with a Pete Riggles VTAF "on-the-fly" Adjuster. By the way, Mr. Riggles is a first rate gentlemen and business person. I will be using a "stand-a-lone" motor to drive the 17 pound platter via a round belt. I am looking foward to getting my new plinth back this weekend and can hardly wait.
I have settled on a Goldring 1042 tracking with 1.25 gr on a PT-9 arm. The combo is wonderful on my set-up, top to bottom a great performer. This cart has out performed an AT150mlx, a Denon DL160 and the next best Ortofon 2m Bronze on my turntable, a VPI HW19. While all the other carts were very nice and I could live with any of them the Gring sounds and tracks best. I also have other less expensive. like the Shure M97xe that also worked well. I am adding the Pete Riggles adjuster also in a few weeks.
Good luck and happy listening.
